Request for Proposals – Construction Project Manager

Introduction:  ESRHS is in the final stages of planning and design for a new 24,000 square feet community health center to be constructed in Eastville, Virginia.  ESRHS is a leading health provider organization and is not in the business of managing and overseeing major construction projects. The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit the services of a Project Manager to act on behalf of ESRHS and oversee all phases of the construction work.

Background:  The Eastville Community Health Center consists of three contracts:

  1. VDOT Roadway Improvements: This work consists of the roadway improvements to construct an access from Route 13 southbound with a right in and right out access for the facility.  The entrance will include a 400-ft deceleration lane and a 400-ft acceleration lane.
  2. Water and Wastewater Contract: This work will consist of the necessary improvements to install two deep wells to supply all potable water for the facility as well as the wastewater treatment system to include chemical injection and ecopoad type treatment devices and a series of drain fields.
  3. General Construction Contract: This work will include all site civil and building construction work to complete the approximately 24,000 sq. ft. facility.

Construction cost estimate for all work is approximately $7,000,000 to 9,000,000.

 

Scope of Services:  In general, the ESRHS organization does not have construction project managers, or personnel experienced in managing large construction contracts.  Therefore, ESRHS is looking for a project manager that will oversee day-to-day project needs and report directly to the ESRHS Chief Operating Officer.   Services may include, but not be limited to, the following:

  1. Review Project Documents: perform Quality Assurance (QA) and constructability reviews on detailed plans and specifications prepared by other consultants.
  2. Chair Pre-bid, preconstruction, progress, and special project meetings. Prepare meeting agendas, minutes and handle follow up action items.
  3. Review and evaluate bids and provide recommendations.
  4. Provide daily on-site representation for ESRHS: perform inspection of the progress of the work, witness testing and commissioning, evaluate work for compliance with the plans, specifications, and applicable codes.  Notify the contractor(s) of deficiencies that require remedial action.  When necessary elevate decisions to the appropriate authority (ESRHS COO, Architect or Engineer) for resolution of issues.
  5. Review and approve Contractor’s schedule.
  6. Review and recommend approval of pay applications.
  7. Review and recommend resolution for claims.
  8. Handle Request for Information and facilitate quick resolution of field issues.
  9. Perform the substantial completion walk-through and approve the punch list items.
  10. Review O&M manuals and facilitate all required training and commissioning with the appropriate vendor and ESRHS staff.
  11. Perform the final completion walk-through and approve the final close out of all punch list items.
  12. Coordinate with the COO the moving and set-up of all furniture and equipment in the facility.

 

Construction Schedule:  ESRHS is working to award construction contracts in the fall of 2017.  Construction of the buildings and site work are schedule for 14 months.  ESRHS anticipates that the services of the Construction Project Manager will be minimal during the construction contract advertisement (review of documents, etc.), but will be full time starting with construction award.  ESRHS anticipates that the PM will be required to be on-site full time.  ESRHS is not interested in the services of a “part-time” project manager to provide windshield inspections.

 

Experience:  ESRHS is seeking an individual to act as the Construction Project Manager that has the requisite and broad experience to facilitate the successful completion of the project with very little oversight from the ESRHS COO.   The Construction Project Manager must be adept at communicating progress and project needs as necessary to keep ESRHS staff fully appraised of the progress of the work and to facilitate important decisions that must be handled by the COO.

 

Proposal Submittal Requirements:  Interested parties are strongly encouraged to provide only relevant information to allow ESRHS to evaluate the qualifications of the proposed Construction Project Manager and the proposed compensation schedule.  ESRHS does not desire extensive sales brochures, project narrative or similar marketing narratives.  Under no circumstances should a proposal exceed 15 pages, single sided, 12pt font.  Proposals should include the following:

  1. Company description: Provide a brief company overview, number of employees, years in business and three references for clients with similar projects.
  2. Professional Resume of proposed Construction Project Manager. Include employment history as well as the most recent projects handled by the individual.  Identify project scope, construction value, change order value and owner point of contact for each project referenced.
  3. Compensation: Identify a proposed compensation plan, or estimate, for the 14 month construction schedule.

 

Proposals shall be submitted by 4:00 pm, August 1, 2017 to the following:

Eastern Shore Rural Health System, Inc.
20280 Market Street
Onley, VA
Attn:  Anne Crabbe

ESRHS will evaluate proposals based on the company capabilities (15%), experience and qualifications of the proposed Construction Project Manager (45%) and the fee proposal structure and estimate (40%).  Depending on the number of proposals and evaluation findings, ESRHS reserves the right to conduct interviews (in person or via conference) request additional information, or proceed straight to negotiation and award of a contract.

Rural Health does not accept applications for non-clinical positions unless there is an advertised opening.
